As the dog days of summer are quickly approaching, the last thing anyone wants are wet pits. Ruining new summery blouses and dresses with smelly odors and pit stains is definitely out of the question. Sometimes, no matter what you do- even if you aren’t doing strenuous activity- you just can’t avoid your armpits from pooling sweat (and that’s not the kind of pools you want in the summer, right?) . Thankfully, Family Circle released an article, “Stop the Sweat”, which outlines some ways to help beat your sweat (before you ruin your clothes!)
When is comes to armpits, and OTC deodorants just are not making the cut, it might be time to resort to other options, like Botox or Dysport. According to Dr. Lara Devgan, these injectables block sweat glands, which allows less odor and less wetness. Botox lasts about three months, which is the perfect amount of time to get you dry armpits all the way through Labor Day… just saying!
Want other options besides botox? This article also discusses other sweat-fighting options like antiperspirant-deodorant duos and clinical-strength wipes that can be prescribed by your dermatologist. And, since we all know that armpits aren’t the only thing that sweat in the summer, check out this publication for ideas on how to beat sweaty boobs and chafed thighs this summer.
